Rusts will market a photo safari geared to the enthusiastic photographer of all levels. It is amazing and worth every penny. Mark, our pilot and photographer, took us all over Prince William Sound to find the great shots. It was all day so plenty of time to land and look around. We had the most awesome spring day, warm, sunny,... More

Very great staff!! Very friendly, my pilot was Russ, I got a little sick on the trip and he was very very nice about it.. It's defiantly worth the money!! To be up on those glaciers is truly breath taking!!

Our initial tour to Mt McKinley was cancelled due to weather, the company offerered a Wildlife and Glacier Tour, pilot was knowledgeable and very friendly. We saw and landed on glaciers. The company refunded us the difference from Mt McKinley to Wildlife Tour.

One of the best things we have done. We booked a Denali tour, they checked the weather and told us before we left that clouds would likely obscure the peak. We discussed options about what to see, we chose to continue our planned flight. Even without seeing the peak, it was outstanding. Peter was great in answering our questions and... More

We used the Rust's Flying Service as part of a tour to Lake Clark NP for bear viewing. Although the weather was overcast and drizzling on the morning we were to fly out, we held out hope. The weather finally broke enough for us to leave safely. Rust's Flying Service talked with us so we understood that we could go... More

The weather was wonderful, ideal for flying, and scenery was breath-taking. We saw mountain goats and some moose, we flew over the glaciers and loved every minute of it. Pilot was full of commentary which added to the experience.

We were a family of 7 and recently took their charter flight. The bears have disappeared from the places they are authorized to take tourists. Seems like the bears have found other fishing grounds or they are tired of tourists congregating there. Don't be fooled by the pics on their website, they are from a while ago! We were on... More

Today we took the flight seeing tour of McKinley/Denali with our pilot Justin. Words can not describe the experience. It was a perfect day for flying, the skies were clear and the sun highlighted the mountains. The peak of Denali broke through the clouds just as we flew by. We also were able to land on frozen Chelatna Lake. The... More

I've flown with Rust's many many times and each flight has been unique and amazing fun. The pilots all have great career experiences to share. They also have a great little shop at the Lake Hood location...go pick up a cool hat or shirt!
